the storm provided mr. obama with a valuable opportunity to show bipartisan leadership in the closing days of this race. republican new jersey governor and romney supporter chris christie repeatedly praised the president's performance and his compassion. >> you're go it to be okay. everybody is safe. >> reporter: today, mr. obama was back in campaign mode, deriding governor romney's eromise to bring change to washington. >> another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy isn't change. >> no! >> turning medicare into a voucher is change, but we don't want that change. oveeporter: the president's iveedule over the next five days tells you a lot about his mpaiaign strategy. he'll be spending a great deal of time in ohio and wisconsin, trying to build a midwest firewall to prevent governor romney, scott, from getting 270 electoral votes. >> pelley: well, nancy, governor eymney went hunting for votes today in another swing state, virginia. snd jan crawford is covering his campaign. mp we really can't have four more years like the last four re ys. i know the-- the obama folks are chanting fo

from when mr. obama took office. 7.8% on the day he took office and 7.9% now. that is literally no change over four years. president obama took office, really, at the worst possible moment in the economic crisis. the details tend to get lost in the political race. >>> thanks, scott. new this morning, the wait is over. the ipad mini hits store shelves this morning and people camped out for the new ipadre lea rele but not as many in the past. bob redell has more. >> reporter: about 50 people lined up in front of the apple store in los gatos this morning. a smaller line than the ones that have gone down the block for previous product releases. why is there not as much excitement? >> because the other tablets are available. you have the kindle and the google. >> reporter: comparable and a $329 price tag for the mini. when the doors opened at 8:00 this morning, price didn't seem to matter. the cash came out in wads. >> i have been waiting for so long to get one and everyone says get a kindle. it doesn't have the same abilities. >> reporter: the mini is half the weight of an ipad and
expensive for me. >> reporter: he said mr. obama broke promises to cut the deficit and save medicare. >> he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. >> you got these guys. >> reporter: and both sides are wary of the impact on polling locations. if prolonged power outages or storm damage prevent voters from casting their ballots, especially in states where early voting is already under way. president obama has adjusted his schedule to stay out of sandy's path. he's flying to florida half a day early tomorrow, and he's getting regular updates from his staff. and, margaret, i wouldn't be surprised if we see more changes to his schedule as the week goes on depending on the severity of the storm. glerg nancy cordes in washington, thank you. overseas now, indonesian police have arrested 11 people suspects of planning attacks on the u.s. embassy and other american and international targets. the suspects were arrested in jakarta and three other provinces on the island of java. police seized live bombs, explosive materials, and a bomb-making manual. the leader of al qaeda is calling on supporte

by three points. and in wisconsin, the polling average has mr. obama ahead by more, by five points. then at 10:00 eastern time, polls will be closed in all of those states and we'll be closing polls in the 10:00 eastern time in that hour in the states that you see blinking right here. these four states. of those four states, iowa, montana, nevada, and utah, two of them are going to be watched really closely. those, of course, are iowa and nevada. the "real clear politics" polling average in iowa right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states
supporters, with little more than a week ago, are beginning to claim victory. in contrast, mr. obama in washington yesterday was burdened with double trouble, faced with a desperately tight election race, but now some campaign plans disrupted by the need to leave the nature -- -- lead the nation through the weather emergency. at least it is a chance to look and sound presidential. with just a week ago and the race in a dead heat, no campaign stunt is too much trouble, even for the wives of the candidates. michelle obama on a tv comedy show literally getting the votes out early, to give the democrats the advantage. and ann romney appealing to the undecided women voters that republicans want to win over. no one really knows what tactics will make a difference. indeed ate swing states that will decide this election, that is. -- in the 8 swing states that will decide the election. >> this is bbc world news. hurricane sandy is strengthening as it approaches the east coast of the united states. these are live pictures in new jersey. the u.s. national hurricane center says it is expecting
for mr. obama to mr. romney and that doesn't seem to be happening right now. i think it ought to be hurting the campaign a bit. >> mark, very briefly. this is really a chance for the president to explore that illusive quality of presidential leadership in the campaign. >> this is what -- who deserves to be president. people are looking towards him, how does he lead, how does he speak for america? it's a real opportunity for him, but if he gets it wrong, that is a very big black mark just days away from the election. >> yeah, this storm, no one knows how it will play out politically. thank you both very much. you're watching "bbc world news america." still to come on tonight's program -- as china gets ready to hand over power to a new generation, the residents of one rural village talk about their expectations. >> a former bbc governor says that jimmy was kept away from children in need. jones, who was chairman of the charity, said he had suspicions about the former tv star a decade ago. his comments come on the day of whether the corporation's child protection and whistle blow
a recession. if mr. obama gets reelected and tre's a stalemate because he wins an electoral majority, electoral college majority and not electoral majority and stalemate with the republican house, we could see the stalemate cause the mother of all recessions, a recession we don't recover from and that we call in economics depression. melissa: you sa it would take two% away from gdp if tax cuts expire. we heard gdp is growing at 2%. that would take us to zero. a bunch of economists got together and say if you couple that with sequestration thing that would be 3.6 to 5.2% decline in gdp. that would be deep into negative territory, right? >> absolutely. and you must remember that if you're at 2% growth and get down to like a half, it is really not sustainable. melissa: no. >> because it is like a man riding on a bicycle. it is so slow he falls off. we're growing as slow as we can get away with without tumbling down. melissa: that 2% today that was better thaexpected is actually horrible because we continued at this rate, it would take usike, seven, eight, nine, years to add back jobs to

blues, but don't forget that mr. obama won his first office as state senator by disenfranchising 1000 black voters in his district which is where i live by the way. removed their names. so it is a game played by both parties. unfortunately the victims are always the same color and the same income group, the vulnerable, class war. right now there's no question that the democrats are doing it and the republicans are doing it but republicans do it wholesale. the republicans have the big datamining operations that cost 40, $50 billion each to develop while demott kratzer playing with their floppy disks so it is the balance has shifted for 2012. not shifted so much to the republicans because that is just -- for shifted to the billionaires, the hands and the public, mr. sanger of the the vulture and his buddy, is other billionaire buddy and let me just bring up a couple more. i mentioned seamus, the koch brothers. oh yeah we are going after couple more and by the way there are four brothers. you will get the whole pack in "billionaires & ballot bandits," not just david and charles but you g
